Optical Fiber Transmission Working Group

Focusing on the technical aspects of the questions studied by ITU-T SG15 WP2 concerning the physical layer of optical transmission networks (optical systems for terrestrial transport networks and submarine cable systems, optical components, fibers, cables, equipment, construction and maintenance), this working group develops national standards and contributes to international standardization activities of ITU-T and others. A special focus of the working group is the development of national standards in relation to wavelength division multiplexing and high-speed optical transmission systems (40 Gb/s, 100Gb/s).
